The New Safestway Café on the first floor of the Safestway Supermarket on the side of the Landmark Building in JVC is a reincarnation of the Milestone Café. It has a bright interior thanks to the floor-to-ceiling glass walls which look out onto the parking lot below. Comfortable sofa singles are used for seating at the tables instead of upright chairs making it comfortable to…um, lounge.
The café uses an interesting concept, all the ingredients sold at the supermarket are used to create their meals. Additionally, you can buy ready-made food at the supermarket delicatessen and eat it at the café – no problem – how cool is that? So, imagine, you can buy a rotisserie chicken for twenty-something Dirhams and have it for lunch or dinner at the café. In any case, everything is priced reasonably at the café from their AED12 superior quality filter coffee (they exclusively use Boon Coffee) to their AED40 200g Rib Eye.
Service at both café and deli is excellent. The young Filipinos manning either station are friendly, chatty and hugely accommodating, particularly Jan at the café.
This is one of those unique places where you can combine your grocery shopping and a meal or simply a coffee. If you live or are passing through JVC, give this place a try – it’s worth it.
Waste NOT. Want NOT.
